Another day, another senseless shooting…

A seemingly random drive-by shooting that took place early Monday morning in the Nation’s Capital has left 13 people injured and DC police scrambling to figure out exactly what happened.

They tumbled to the sidewalk or ran for cover, scraping and kicking fruitlessly at the locked front door of an apartment building amid a spray of gunfire from two cars speeding down North Capitol Street early Monday.
The backdrop was Tyler House, a subsidized-apartment building where violence has visited all too frequently for residents and police.
In the end, 13 people were hit in the drive-by shooting Monday, nearly all of them grazed or struck in their arms or legs. One victim took a bullet to the lower back and was described as being in critical condition.
“Everybody was screaming,” said Jonique Douglas, 21, who had just come out of a nightclub around the corner and was standing in front of Tyler House when the bullets came. “They shooting like directly at us. . . . It coulda been a bloody mess.”
Douglas said about a dozen people were standing on the sidewalk about 2:10 a.m., minutes after the club closed. A video of the shooting distributed by D.C. police showed cars speeding by and people falling to the ground.
D.C. police scrambled Monday to piece together what happened and who was involved, although they said no one has been arrested.
Summer hasn’t even begun to creep up on us yet and already people are acting a fool. SMH.
